92% of Irish bets are for McGregor to win

23 Jun, 2017

PaddyPower reports that 92 per cent of bets that have been placed in Ireland on the McGregor-Mayweather fight have been for McGregor to win. The unexpected support at the bookies has prompted Paddy Power to cut McGregor’s outsider odds from 13/2 to 4/1 in recent days:

Given the nature of the betting, we’d be left more battered and bruised than any of the Dubliner’s previous opponents should he upset the odds.

Bookies are also offering bets on whether Sinead O’Connor’s will sing The Foggy Dew (5-2) and whether McGregor will do the Billionaire Strut (1-2), if Mayweather will win in a first round KO (33-1), McGregor will be disqualified for kicking (10-1), and whether his next fight is with a bear (100-1), Hulk Hogan (500-1) or UFC lightweight title rivals Khabib Nurmagomedov (6-4) or Tony Ferguson (6-1).
